You should be able to find it at nearly any RV parts supply place. Here's a quick find on Google:
Hilltop RV Superstore

Yes, most RV stores would have some type of cover, but I have not seen one like yours. Simular, yes, but not as neat as the old style seems to be, not a well made as well perhaps. I have my cover "door" taped on, one side of the "hinge" broke off two years ago. I had been making a temperary hinge with white duck tape, but this year I used white vinyl tape.

I want to put off having to take out the rivets.

Mine just broke off my 76' Trillium on this last trip - looks like it's time to replace all 3 cover plates on my Trillium as they are all finally falling apart from weather exposure. My problem is I have the beige Trillium and I doubt that I will be able to find anything but white now. One of the forum's members was having a tough time finding a quality replacement for his Trillium as the replacements are all cheaply made.

I certainly can't attest to the quality of the materials, but if you click on the link I provided you'll see Off White as well as Polar White. I bought an Off White Stove Vent hatch cover and it certainly isn't bright white.... almost a cross between a tan and white. Might not be perfect match to your old ones Booker tho... Removing and then replacing the vent cover by riveting wasn't any big deal. And, I used butyl too.

There's one exactly like the one Kevin is looking for too.

Thanks Donna, I will try those out. Do they sell the water intake/outflow covers too?

Don't know... what do the Trillium's look like? There's three pages of water "fillers," here:
Hilltop RV > PLUMBING > WATER PRODUCTS > FILLERS >

Do I drill out the rivets to take the old cover off or can I grind the rivet heads off? (will not be using the old cover)

Hi Kevin,

I had better luck drilling out the old rivet heads and then popping it through that way. If you drill the same thickness as the rivet you can end up with the rivet head stuck on the drill bit and it's hard to pull off. I haven't tried grinding them.

Thanks Donna, I found the the 3 water intakes on that link.
